      European Macroseismic Scale (EMS) The complete EMS scale is too long to reproduce in its entirety, being a small book in length. This is because, while historically intensity scales have been presented simply as a list of classes and diagnostics for the user to make of what he will, the EMS scale comes with. 6.

For this purpose, the following five groups carried out the surveys to obtain the.

      The seismotectonic conditions of the Iberian Peninsula trigger the occurrence of earthquakes with an occasional periodicity, but with intensities greater than VI on the European macroseismic scale (EMS). For this reason, local action protocols are required in order to efficiently organise the technical inspections that must be carried out on a massive scale after events such as the Cited by: 1. Mercalli Scale (MMI). In general, data for Central Europe have to be transferred MMIfrom to the European Macroseismic Scale (EMS). Within the paper, available macroseismic intensity data are related to ground motions and observed damages in .

        On the European Macroseismic Scale (Grünthal, ), intensities of 2 are considered ‘Scarcely felt – only at isolated instances of individuals at rest and in a specially receptive position indoors’, an intensity of 3 is ‘Weak – felt indoors by few; people at rest feel a swaying or light trembling’, and an intensity of 4 is. The data on damage to buildings and other earthquake effects were analysed according to the definitions and guidelines of European Macroseismic Scale (EMS), which is predominantly used in Europe in the last two decades. Macroseismic data of more than localities were evaluated in Slovenia and relevant data were obtained also from Cited by: 1.

The European Macroseismic Scale, (EMS, Grünthal et al. ) is a widely used macroseismic scale and its structure makes it very appropriate as the basis for a globally applicable scale.

Selected historical and recent earthquakes are chosen to document and constrain related seismic parameters using updated methodologies.

The intensity, or macroseismic intensity, represents a classification of the severity of ground-motion shaking during an earthquake on the basis of observed effects at a given word “macroseismic” refers to perceptible effects of earthquakes as opposed to instrumental observations.

Intensity data are not only a surprisingly good measure of ground. Abstracted from - Grünthal, G., (ed.), ()."European Macroseismic Scale ", Cahiers du Centre Européen de Géodynamique et de Séismologie Vol Luxembourg.

The collected data and analysis were determined according to European Macroseismic scale (EMS) and calibrated using Japanese qualitative method.

The results showed that one third of the investigated buildings belong to seismic vulnerability of class A (heavy damage), whereas about 40 percent of the buildings indicate class B (moderate.
